Presented here are the basic concepts, methods, and mathematical developments which are necessary to understand spacecraft attitude dynamics and control. This book is a comprehensive and
self-contained treatment with emphasis on the practical aspects of the subject. It is a "road map" to the field of spacecraft dynamics and control, which contains all essential elements of kinematics, rigid
body dynamics, linear control theory, environmental effects, and the theory of the stability of motion, all in a single volume. The book is based on the author's more than thirty years of industrial and teaching
experience and can be used as a textbook in aerospace engineering courses at either the senior or the first-year graduate school level.
